2666: A Novel Roberto Bolano
Publisher: Picador

More than a month ago I began reading Roberto Bolaño's 2666, I suppose on a lark. Bolaño, in fact, when he realized he was dying (d. Not every writer would write a novel in the form of a completely invented encyclopaedia of imaginary writers and call the result Nazi Literature in the Americas. 2666 Roberto Bolaño´s novel 2666 takes off from five different airstrips and touches down in more locations than a Jason Bourne movie.

According to his heirs, Roberto Bolaño left instructions that his final work, 2666, should be published as five separate novels, each corresponding to one of the sections of the book as it appears today. Bolaño's final novel, 2666, represents a sort of apotheosis of that dread. And this is probably why, out of all the 'books' in 2666, I liked Book II best. Santa Teresa, in the state of Sonora, on the Mexican-U.S. While a rose by any other name may well smell as sweet, the title of a book is most frequently inextricably linked to the nature and quality of the story contained within.
